What is the Gathering?

Change, conflict and the reconciliation are core to the journey of faith, to churches and to the world. We hope the Gathering will follow in the footsteps of other successful conferences exploring faith-based responses to conflict.

What’s the aim?

  • to respond to the hunger for reconciliation and peace in churches and communities
  • to develop and sustain the art of conflict transformation, reconciliation and peace building
  • to share and develop knowledge and skills to support reconciliation work
  • to strengthen the unique contribution made to conflict transformation by churches and faith communities
  • to uncover the peace-making skills you already have!

Who is the Gathering for?

Anyone and everyone interested in faith-based conflict transformation.
